Another Australia Day has come and gone, and to celebrate I made this no churn Gluten Free Lamington Ice Cream! It’s ridiculously easy to make, with the most time consuming step involving making gluten free sponge cake for the recipe. I used my lamington sponge cake recipe but you could also use a gluten free packet vanilla cake mix if you’re short on time!
This year I wanted to make something a little different, and given the Summer heat in Melbourne, what better option than ice cream! For something a little different you could even add raspberry jam?
To all my Aussie followers, I hope you had a lovely Australia Day with your family and friends.
Chocolate Lamingtons have always been on my “to bake gluten free” bucket list. So what better time to test out baking these Gluten Free Chocolate Lamingtons with Australia Day next week.
I really enjoy Australia Day. We go on a road trip to a different beach each year and get to spend the day hanging out with my family. For those that don’t know much about me, I have one brother and three sisters. I’m the youngest of the family with two nieces and two nephews. I adore them all so much and love that Lyla has so many aunties, uncles and cousins to play with and protect her in this crazy world.
Anyway, getting back to the baking – these chocolate lamingtons are really tasty and quick to make. You can slice them in half and add a little jam or cream if you fancy. If you’re really after something different, you can also try making my lime lamingtons. They’re filled with lime curd and are ridiculously good, but then again, I’m a sucker for anything with lime or lemon curd.
Hope you have a fabulous Australia Day and don’t forget, I’d love to hear from you if you make any of my recipes. Thanks to the McGrath Foundation High Tea cookbook for the original recipe which was then adapted to be gluten free and modified for my baking preferences.
Today I’m sharing this Gluten Free Cherry Coconut Slice that I was planning to make but Jesse ended up baking for work. I’m sure I have mentioned it before but my husband loves to bake? It comes in handy, especially these days when Lyla often demands my attention halfway through baking something.
Anyway, it was one of those “Bring a plate to share” kind of work functions and it seems everyone loved it as there was none left! I was meaning to share it with you last week but we got caught up making brownies (my Walnut and White Chocolate Brownies) and Jesse’s Chocolate Ganache Macaron’s for a market on the weekend.
Thanks for stopping by, The Naughty Dietitian xoxo
Over the last few weeks I’ve noticed a theme with my recipes containing citrus or summer fruit, including these Gluten Free Orange Cacao Bliss Balls. Think it’s the warm weather inspiring me but either way, these orange cacao balls have been a great new addition to morning/afternoon tea.
The fresh orange juice and zest is a refreshing twist to the standard coconut and cacao flavour and they really hit the spot when craving something sweet! Added bonus these orange cacao bliss balls are packed full of healthy ingredients.
Guess I can’t hide the dietitian in me all the time and occasionally like to share a healthier recipe with you all. Don’t hold it against me.
These Gluten Free Coconut Macaroons have to be the simplest and quickest biscuits to make. Really, how could you go wrong with only four ingredients?
It’s a recipe worth keeping up your sleeve for last minute guests or simply for an afternoon treat with your cup of tea or coffee. Thanks to the McGrath Foundation’s High Tea cookbook for the original recipe.
